Review by Kevin Paulich
Life in The Emerald Isle
Phil Coogan is a natural story teller. His personal account of life in Ireland makes the reader feel as if he has lived there himself. Reading about raising a young family near Belfast in the early 1970’s during the tragedies and injustices of the “Troubles” between the nationalists and the loyalists is particularly dramatic, exciting and sad. While this book might benefit from a bit of editing to correct errors in grammar and punctuation, those same defects lend the book a certain charm. I highly recommend this book, especially to those interested in The Emerald Isle and its people.
